A public school principal, Zach Ruff, in Downingtown, Pennsylvania came unhinged when two children dared to voice their opposition to abortion and spoke of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (video below). The two kids, Connor and Lauren Haines, stood on a sidewalk outside of Downingtown STEM Academy holding signs and peacefully expressing their views on abortion and the grace of God, but once Ruff discovered them the peace quickly evaporated.
Ruff was offended by the mere presence of Connor and Lauren, so he charged at them with the purpose of intimidating them enough to motivate them to leave, but they stood their ground. Connor did not flinch as he held a sign that, based on Ruff’s reaction to the sign, was a picture of an aborted baby that Ruff declared is nothing more than “cells.” Lauren stood beside Connor holding a sign that read: “Christ died for your sins; you do not have to murder your baby to cover them up. Turn away from death. Turn to Jesus Christ.” The signs were too much for Ruff, so he stood in front of Connor and Lauren to conceal them from passing motorists. When Connor and Lauren spoke, he tried to drown them out by loudly singing “I love a parade.” Ruff is obviously a mature professional dedicated to defending free speech.
It was Connor who lit Ruff’s fuse when he said, “You need to turn to Jesus Christ.” Ruff wheeled around and stepped directly in front of Connor and delivered this venomous rant (2:48): “Listen here, son, alright. I’m as a gay as the day is long and twice as sunny. I don’t give a f#ck what you think Jesus tells me and what I should and should not be doing!” The following is an exchange between Connor, Lauren, and Ruff that took place after Ruff’s declaration of his homosexuality and his rejection of Jesus:
Connor: “He died on the cross. Jesus can set you free from your sins; it’s the truth, it’s the gospel.”
Ruff: “Just because you choose to believe a book of fiction doesn’t mean I have to. Just because you believe it does not make it true! You and Trump can go to hell!”
Lauren: “Sir, the only people going to hell are those who do not believe in Jesus Christ.”
Ruff: “That’s only if you believe in hell, which I don’t, so I’m not going! It doesn’t work that way, sister! Shut up and leave my children alone!”
There are many things to say about Ruff’s profanity-laced tirade, so let’s get started.
Ruff is a stereotypical Democrat who wants to squelch speech that contradicts his propaganda. In fact, he threatens to call the police, if Connor and Lauren do not leave. Democrats/Atheists are fascists who dream of a police state that punishes people who violate their speech codes; political correctness backed by force and the threat of imprisonment is an integral part of progressive utopianism. Ruff never called the police because he knows that, although his comrades on the Left are gaining significant ground in their quest to abolish free speech, he would never have convinced law enforcement in Downingtown that it is their duty to silence Connor and Lauren and remove them from a public sidewalk. Take heart, Ruff, one day, you will get your way.
Christians can expect to be persecuted by non-believers because God warned His people that they would be persecuted.
If you were of the world, it would love you as its own. Instead, the world hates you, because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. Remember the word that I spoke to you: No servant is greater than his master. If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you as well; if they kept My word, they will keep yours as well. – John 15:19-20
It is just a matter of time before Christians in America suffer the same fate as Jesus Christ. Christians are pilgrims in this world and have to endure the slings and arrows of Satan’s people on the road to Heaven.
Ruff stated, after letting Connor know that the Bible is a “book of fiction,” that he is not going to hell because he does not believe in hell; evidently, Ruff, the educator, thinks if you don’t believe something exists, it doesn’t exist. Did I mention that Ruff is the dean of academics and student life at Downingtown STEM? Democrats/Atheists are big gamblers, the biggest because they are betting against the existence of God. Let’s put the Democrats’ gamble into perspective. If Christians are wrong about the existence of God, they will never know it; they’ll be worm food. If Democrats/Atheists are wrong about there being no God, they will lose paradise and spend eternity in hell. Ruff is placing a bet that dwarfs any bet that has been or ever will be wagered in any casino in the world.
Satan, the deceiver of the world, uses people like Ruff to do his bidding. Satan has duped Ruff into believing his lies, and Ruff downloaded those lies onto Connor and Lauren. Satan has convinced Ruff that unborn babies are not human and the Bible is a work of fiction, so God does not exist. Therefore, hell does not exist. Hence, Ruff thinks he is free from the consequences of his thoughts and actions.
Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God. – 2 Corinthians 4:4
It is not too late for Ruff and those of his ilk to reject Satan and his political party. Ruff’s mental deficiency is the work of the great deceiver and his minions in the Democrat Party, and he has to find the strength to reject them or suffer the same fate as them.
Padre Pio was once asked what he thought about modern people who didn’t believe in hell. “They’ll believe in hell when they get there” he replied. Ruff and his fellow Democrats/Atheists will believe in hell when they get there.
